 Mountain State Press, Inc., announces their latest publication: Looking For Ireland: An Irish-Appalachian Pilgrimage by Laura Treacy Bentleyhttp://www.mountainstatepress.org/



Both a chapbook and a work of art, her book creates a seamless alchemy of elegant poems and stunning photographs. The 48-page collection “... reveal[s] fresh landscapes of thought and feeling. In our rushed and muddled world, Bentley's meditative poems are like breathing spaces—elegant, clarifying, assured.” --- Julia Keller, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Sorrow Road.



"You are holding in your hand a thing of beauty. Here, indeed, Laura Treacy Bentley makes 'words flicker like flame.' The imagery of the poems is married to stunning photographs forming a perfect balance. You will be taken seamlessly on a visual and poetic journey from Appalachia to Ireland, 'to the fuchsia that bleeds on Inish Mor' and 'Blackbirds seed the summer clouds' and back again. This is a work of art that achieves what the poet/photographer strives for, 'to capture wild beauty before it takes flight.'" ---Tony O'Dwyer, co-editor of Crannog magazine (Galway, Ireland)



The official release of Looking For Ireland: An Irish-Appalachian Pilgrimage is March 11, at River & Rail Bakery in Huntington, WV, 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.



Looking For Ireland is now available on  Amazon!
